Traditional Chinese Medicine
The primary feature of modern TCM is the that good health relies on the restoration and maintenance of harmony. Traditional Chinese medicine takes a holistic approach to understanding normal function and disease processes. Chinese herbal medicine is part of TCM. Herbs are prescribed to restore energy balance to the opposing forces of energy - Yin and Yang based on laws of nature - that run through invisible channels in the body. TCM includes various forms of moxibustion, Chinese herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage (tui na), exercise (qigong), and dietary therapy. It is primarily used as a complementary alternative medicine approach.
